Seibold went to the dressing room very early. He's going to rip these useless fucks a new asshole.

I'm more interested in him doing so with his team selections though.

This Dragons team is reminding me bit of late 2015 Broncos, just with a better forward pack but worse backs. The two running halves on both sides of the field is always good to watch

Cordner with a blatant shoulder charge on Foran..... commentators, "great shot from Cordner that's what you want from the NSW captain."

If it was a Qlder it would have been "he may have something to answer to there."

That try they awarded for a clear double movement.

Think Trent Robinson must be in the bunker.

Yeah I wasn't sure about it tbh but it went up no try so they probably should have stuck with the onfield ref.

Backwards pass putting Foran into space called forward. Refs are giving it all to the chooks

He obviously promotes it with his arm. Momentum didn't take him there. How they came up with try is baffling.



Cronk given a penalty for taking it to the line and getting hit fairly..

Jot Round 14 2019 down as a classic Tom Trbojevic performance. St George were all over Manly inside the opening twenty, but once Tom was able to inject himself into the game, it ended up becoming a flogging.

Granted, McInness' injury happened around the same time and the Dragons dearly missed him, but Trbojevic pulled out as dominant a performance as you're going to see. I can't think of anyone other than Taumalolo who's made a bigger contribution to their team.

What I like about his play is that he has this signature play that everybody knows is coming, but they can seldom stop it. Second man pass from DCE, draw and run around the 3rd defender to bring the centre in. Either Turbo earns a good play the ball, or he puts his centre away into space. The Dragons backline flattered him, but geez it's good to watch him run. The good balance of athleticism, power and footy smarts.

There's a lot to like about that Manly side. The NRL really did a poor job coming down on them with the salary cap, they've got one of the most talented rosters in the competition. Cherry, Taupau and Jake are as good as ever, but I'm happy to see Sironen come of age. He was right up there with Tedesco, Klemmer, Taumalolo etc. as one of the best of his age group, but injuries have dogged him. They're bringing him to play, and he's beginning to make a name for himself as one of the most skillful edge forwards in the game.

There's players who hit the scene with a lot of raps, fail to impress but come back later in their careers better players. Matty Prior is a good example, and I think Sirro is following in the same ilk.

I'm not saying anything too outlandish, but if Fonua-Blake cuts the crap, he'll be the best front row forward in the game.
